      Je travaille chez The Institute of Cancer Research à temps plein depuis plus d'un an

      Avantages

      The work environment is very friendly, and many opportunities for conferences, travel, and collaboration.

      Inconvénients

      I was put to work in a highly disruptive work environment with no consideration for health and safety. When I discussed this with my supervisor, the only space I could be given completely isolated me from my team and most days, other people. The isolation and the lack of guidance have been terrible for both my learning and my mental health.

      Conseils à la direction

      If a PI wants to take on a PhD student, ensure they have appropriate space for the type of work. If a student is not handling biomaterials, they should not be sat in a lab.

      Approuve le PDG

      Je travaille chez The Institute of Cancer Research à temps plein depuis plus de 2 ans

      Avantages

      Strong independent cancer research focus with clear values (untainted from industry financial incentives), good work-life balance, great team mentality, communication of weekly news across all areas of research via email/intranet, clear support and training opportunities for employees, performance is rewarded with commitment to promotion from within.

      Inconvénients

      Benefits typically seen in clinical trials companies (pharmaceuticals/CROs) not as great, high turnover in certain positions on an annual basis can leave areas short-staffed.

      Conseils à la direction

      Better interaction and understanding of separate departments’ work would be good, not just in upper-management positions.

      J'ai travaillé chez The Institute of Cancer Research à temps plein

      Avantages

      There are some good research teams with excellent leadership

      Inconvénients

      1. Beware of the team leaders who haven't managed to retain anyone who has worked with them in academia. This should be a massive warning sign when considering joining a lab anywhere 2. Unlike most universities, the ICR does not have a policy of a supervisory panel where a primary supervisor's advice and decisions regarding their student's work is checked regularly by another, more senior researcher with a good track...

      Conseils à la direction

      Read the reviews people leave about their line managers in the exit questionnaire, and act on them if you really want to avoid further negative press about the bullying culture at the ICR.

      J'ai travaillé chez The Institute of Cancer Research à temps plein plus de 2 ans

      Avantages

      Very good salary and great benefit (considering that you are not requested to do any job); decent facilities, sound reputation (as an heritage from the past, where perhaps ICR was actually good) that will improve visibility of your CV.

      Inconvénients

      Extremely slow pace of work to the point of being very boring. The research approach is quite obsolete, clearly lagging behind the private sector. Team leaders are often clueless and arrogant. Yelling and non-professional behavior is common, as it is in all academic environments (so not surprising). No possibility for career growth, apart for Team leaders (as usual in all academic environments). I guess that the ICR...

      Conseils à la direction

      Recruit better team leaders and engage more all employees in Institute-wide projects/ interactions. Challenge the people with clear INSTITUTE-focus objectives. Start from recruitment, which has to be division/department-led and not just decided by a team leader/professor. In other words make all employees feel part of the Institute/Department/Division, not just part of a small team led by a team leader/professor (who...

      Avantages

      Brilliant organisation with fantastic values and history in cancer research. Currently undergoing a world-leading London Cancer Hub development at the Sutton site. Now has a very good stance on bullying and harassment following recent press reports on this matter. You feel like you are making a difference.

      Inconvénients

      Certain departments can be isolated from each other (except management of course) due to different sites and multiple buildings on even 1 site.

      Lack of funding to carry out work. Lack of mentoring for Postdocs. Very low morale among staff.

      Conseils à la direction

      Good work must be credited to boost morale.
